MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) _ A Texas couple has donated $1 million for Kansas State University's new College of Business Administration building.

The university says Rand Berney and his wife, Patti, of Southlake, Texas, donated the money for the new 140,000-square foot building, which is expected to open in July 2016.

Rand Berney is a native of Phillipsburg and graduated from Kansas State in 1977. He is retired from ConocoPhillips, where his last position was senior vice president of corporate shared services.

Berney is on the executive committee of the dean's advisory council for the College of Business Administration, is an executive-in-residence for the college and is vice chairman of the Kansas State Foundation.
